GRDDL, vCard and microformats: a Ballet

Last week I constructed a contact page and enriched it with the hCard microformat. Using the wonderful web service X2V of Brian Suda anyone is able to retrieve a vCard file from my contact page. Now, yesterday the next wunderful Norman Walsh jumped in and reworked the vCard Vocabular and documented his work on Extracting vCards from hCard markup. Norman’s work resulted in a RDF Vocabulary and a GRDDL transformation (I have local copies of this in here).

Having all this in place there are several ways to represent my contact data: as XHTML with hCard microformat, as vCard and [vCard RDF][9]. Thanks to all for the work!
